Unique, Best-Selling Products and Services

■ Large FRP fishing boats (Domestic share: 100%)

We have the only shipyard that is equipped to build ships of up to 180 gross tonnage, the largest class for FRP vessels in Japan, primarily for fishing boats. We perform all aspects of shipbuilding, from planning to design, manufacture, and inspection. We also design and build custom-made ships based on the customer’s needs. Starting from a completely blank slate, we first use wood to create a frame that will form the shape of the boat. Next, we apply our own special technology to the FRP molding method to manufacture parts that are lightweight, strong, and durable, in order to build lightweight boats that also conserve energy.

Appeal to New Graduates/Mid-Career Recruits

Our company is located near the sea in the beautiful natural environment of Shimonoseki, Yamaguchi Prefecture, where we plan, design, manufacture, and perform maintenance on FRP products primarily for ships. We utilize our technology not only in the Japanese market, but also around the world, and work ambitiously on the development of new products.
